announcing the active voice blog

Along with redesigning the look and feel of the Active Voice website (this is the fourth major iteration, for those keeping track), I’ve decided that it’s high time I launched a blog as a way to interact with clients and colleagues through the exchange of useful tools, tips, and techniques.

By way of an introduction: I launched Active Voice Writing & Editorial Services seven years ago after leaving a management position to become a full-time freelance writer. Since then, my clientele has grown steadily to include a variety of nonprofit and professional organizations, private companies, and the federal government. Along the way, I won a national award and in my spare time I wrote a novel that was published last year.

On the Active Voice blog, you’ll find articles on:

  • Writing and editing tips
  • Lifehacks for writers
  • Observations on issues that affect writers
  • Handy reference downloads
  • Tips for managing your paper and computer files
  • Links to useful and interesting resources
  • …and more!

I hope you’ll follow along as I gear up the blog over the next few weeks. Feel free to leave comments or e-mail me with suggestions for topics that you’d like to see covered — or to finally get an authoritative answer about when to use “that” vs. “which.”
